The Narcotics Control Bureau today (21st November) arrested comedienne Bharti Singh after raiding her house and office and recovering 86.5 gms. of ganja. This is considered small quantity. Bharti’s name had cropped up during interrogation of an arrested drug peddler. The stand-up comedienne and television and film actress admitted to consuming drugs. Her husband, Harsh Limbachiya, is also under the radar.
Bharti was arrested under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. She is likely to be produced before the holiday court tomorrow (22nd). Examination of Harsh is underway, according to the NCB.
The NCB is probing the consumption of drugs in Bollywood after the drugs angle came into the spotlight in the Sushant Singh Rajput suicide case.
